SAD NEWS. It is with sadness that we report the passing of the sister of WATV volunteer Vernice Smith. Our sympathies go to her and the entire Smith family on such a sad day.
HUGE thank you to all of the kids at Mundy's Bay Public School who all raised $4,950 for We Are The Villagers. This is a massive achievement and will help to get more deserving kids off our waiting list and into summer programs! It shows the power of the community working together. We cannot thank you enough.
